Keeping Up with Washington
Federal legislation and regulation related to public sector retirement is constantly changing, and our Government Affairs Director works daily with key staff and regulators to fight for our members’ interests. Through our new quarterly Updates from Washington, our members have privileged access to inside information that will affect the future of government defined contribution plans.
Meet Our Director of Government Affairs
